Hi,

I have an HP laptop 620 model, I tried reloading a new copy of Windows 7 Ultimate but needed to format the partition where I needed to install the new copy! It did take the windows so now I'm sitting with a notebook without an Operating System! Help PLEASE!!!!!!

Thanks

What was the error code and at what point did the install fail?
You might have a hard drive problem and my need to replace it.

You should be able to re-install Windows by starting from the DVD. You might need to use a PF key to change the booting order so the laptop starts from the DVD.

After installing the OS you probably should then go to the HP support web site and download the HP specific drivers.

Good Luck

Hi thanx for the help, its seems that the boot order had to be changed as you said, I did get it right Its working but I decided to load Windows 8, Is It possible to still load Windows 7 as additional OS and How would I be getting to go about it, thanks
